After an extended hiatus where they spent their time away from the touring circuit, travelling, writing and recording new music, Pierce Brothers have announced the release of their new single Kanko. A mellow acoustic, harmony based single with a driving beat, Kanko calls to a freedom found in the mountain air, reminiscing that free feeling will come again after this time of isolation.
Co-written over a weekend with singer/songwriter and producer Garrett Kato (Ziggy Alberts) who has recently released another cowrite with Julia Stone (Breath It In), mastered by Joe Carra at Crystal Mastering (The Tesky Brothers, The Cat Empire) Kanko has catchy hooks and an uplifting message. For fans of the chilled folk vibes or Angus and Julia Stone, Ziggy Alberts and Garrett Kato, Kanko is a smooth, beat driven track that calls out to easier times to come.
The clip for Kanko was a bit of a process in the time of COVID-19. With the music video shoot in New Zealand (and Jack’s wedding) cancelled, brothers Jack and Pat had to get creative in how film the new clip for Kanko. Setting up in Jack’s home studio, they ran footage taken from their extensive touring around the world, from personal headliners to those supporting Tash Sultana in 2019. “We had big plans on making a little trip while we were in New Zealand and getting some of the beautiful landscapes and mountains as a feature, but then we had to cancel it all, so we had to improvise,” Pat recalls. “The song is about holding on and knowing that those times will come again so we used the footage from tours we’ve done over the last few years, and filmed new stuff in our little home studio, with a cast and crew of just the two of us. I think it reinforces that feeling, that we will get through all this, that this isolation won’t be forever, and we can always make do!”
